Jammu and Kashmir police arrested seven students under the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act (UAPA) for allegedly raising objectionable slogans and celebrating the Indian cricket team's defeat in the World Cup final.
These students belong to an agricultural university - Sher-e-Kashmir University of Agricultural Sciences and Technology (SKUAST)–Kashmir, the officials said on Monday.
The arrest of the students commenced after the police launched an investigation into a complaint by a non-local student.
The complainant alleged his collegemates had harassed him and raised objectionable slogans after India lost the final match in the World Cup against Australia.
The students have been booked under various sections of the UAPA and the Indian Penal Code, the officials said.
